[ FAQs ]
Q. What does 3.5X optical lens mean?
A. A 3.5X optical lens has fixed focal length with 3.5X magnifying power. It
is comprised of several lens elements in the module that enable it to enlarged
pictures without compromising pixel quality. It is utilized more frequently by
professional photographers with better light gathering ability than zoom lenses
for the quality shots.

compatible with [BRIC+] case in your portfolio?

and some other collections. You will be able to order through our website.

from your website?

Q. Are other colors
A. Only limited color combinations (Black/Black for thermoplastic, Silver/Black, Black/Black, Red/Black for Aluminum Alloy, and Titan Shadow/Black for Titanium Alloy) are available during the Kickstarter campaign. However, with funding
success, we will immediately prepare to offer multiple color options.
Q. Would a commercial
version of the titanium case be available?
A. The Titanium frame edition is only for the Kickstarter
campaign with limited orders. It is quite challenging for manufacturers to
manage small quantity orders for Titanium. However, we will increase our
production system gradually to include small quantity custom orders. We will
keep you posted if and when it becomes available.

I do if [BRIC+] case is not functioning properly?

[ VISION OF THE FUTURE ]
With funding success, our first goal is to
deliver [BRIC+] cases in perfect
condition to our backers on time. That is our first and more important priority;
our team will focus on the progress to ensure that everything is on track. As
we deliver products to our backers as planned, we will take further steps to address “Fun & Productivity” solutions
for the digital culture.
Our mission is to deliver a unique experience to the Digital Age by the
creative combination of advanced technology and design. Our team will keep up
with users’ rising expectations and will establish a close relationship with
SCHEDULE:: Delivering our backers products on time is our priority. The total turnaround time expected is 32 weeks. We have already dedicated a considerable amount of time and effort early on to keep the ball rolling continuously. However, if issues arise, we have anticipated some challenges along with potential resolutions as well as possible schedule impacts. We estimate 18~22 weeks from the point of the Kickstarter launch to deliver products in perfect condition to our backers.
PROCESS & QUALITY:: Our team is completely capable of managing the majority of issues associated with product development and production. However, if challenging issues occur that require multiple iterations to get manufacturing prep on track, we will still be able to fulfill our commitment and achieve the expected progress. When we encounter quality related issues, we will employ our complete dedication to determine the most efficient solution to avoid any schedule & quality impacts.
SUPPLY CHAIN:: We consider only qualified suppliers for the mass production in order to maintain consistent quality control and to manage turnaround time efficiently. However, we continue to develop relationships with multiple supply channels in case of potential disadvantages affecting our customers. We will determine quickly if these developing relationship supply channels could meet our expectations and execute production contracts for the best quality products.
